A peaceful garden, inhabited by a community of gnomes, some friendly, some grumpy. However, when a dog arrives, the tranquil world gets turned upside down. Can this community pull together?
Homelands explores what happens when everything you know has been turned upside down.
Participants are thrown into the centre of an imagined world and asked to creatively respond to the upheaval they find themselves in.
This collaborative project is a way to catalogue human ingenuity and provide escapism during a time of crisis. Homelands is for anyone who needs a creative outlet and sense of connection during this time.
This interactive experience asks you, the participant, to help in the creation of an imagined world. Alongside others who have selected the same world, you will decide how to respond to an adverse situation that you are faced with. Your situation will be detailed in an original short story which is unique to you! This story will be handwritten and posted to you*.
You can undertake this as a solo activity, or take part with your household.
